The launch of HORIZON CAMPUS gives me immense pleasure and an enormous sense of achievement more because of the extensive suite of magnificent opportunities we will be able to offer in the way of education to the youth of Sri Lanka at an affordable fee and at internationally acceptable quality.

Conceptually, the establishment of a university style education institute was derived from a long period of gestation for several reasons. One overarching consideration was finding a suitable green and quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The other was to have a purpose built infrastructure to house an excellent faculty providing a congenial teaching & learning ambiance for students to experience the university life-style. Now we could feel happy that at HORIZON CAMPUS located in Malabe, we could find all these and more with ultra-modern lecture halls, state-of-the-art facilities, and a sport complex.I have brought to HORIZON CAMPUS a wealth of experience I gathered from Oxford Business College, Colombo 7, where as its founder and MD, I was able to develop it to be the market leader in the ABE - UK programme and produce world award winners from its inception of the College seven years ago.

I am of resolute confidence that with well qualified, experienced and dedicated staff I have, I could achieve greater heights at HORIZON CAMPUS.HORIZON CAMPUS commences with a variety of disciplines conducted by its School of ICT, School of Education and Teacher Training, and School of Psychology. In its second phase by 2012, HORIZON CAMPUS looks forward to establish the School of Law, School of Engineering, School of Built Environment and School of Bio-Science. All these programmes are degree programmes with awarding body being a foreign University which is recognized internationally including the UGC (Sri Lanka).

The special feature of our philosophy of education is to educate students developing their skills to be useful and productive citizens with high moral, ethical, cultural and religious values to live in harmony in a diversity of social aspirations. We at Horizon Campus pledge to serve with utmost integrity and commitment to achieve these ends.

 

Since the inception of HORIZON CAMPUS in February, 2011 it has achieved many significant mile stones during a very short period of time to become one of the elite members in the field of higher education in Sri Lanka.

Students in Sri Lanka who did not get selected for the National University System now have this excellent opportunity of joining HORIZON CAMPUS, Malabe - Sri Lanka; the only private educational establishment in Sri Lanka to achieve the following credentials:

  • Approved by the ministry of Higher Education (MoHE)
  • Recognised by the University Grants Commission (UGC)
  • Listed in the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) directory

I had the pleasure of joining HORIZON CAMPUS in 2015 when it was in the process of transforming to a modern era to begin its new journey for the 21st century with big plans in hand.

I joined HORIZON CAMPUS as its first Chief Executive Officer (CEO) with an educational background of 15 years in the UK. I left Sri Lanka in 2000 to complete my Master’s Degree in Business Administration (MBA) at Buckinghamshire University upon completing my Diploma in Marketing (CIM) in Sri Lanka. In 2003 University of Brunel from Middlesex offered me a full Scholarship to embark on a Doctoral Research (PhD.) in Brand / Marketing Management. I also had the opportunity of working for some global brands and organisations such as Marks and Spencer PLC., Merck, Innovex (USA), Novartis (Swiss) and Leo Pharmaceuticals from Denmark. From 2010 to 2015 I was dedicated to work for Buckinghamshire New University (Bucks/BNU) as its Global Head of Business Development where I managed to establish many collaborations with Sri Lankan educational organisations including Sri Lanka Institute of Marketing (SLIM).

HORIZON CAMPUS is a great place for you to study most of the disciplines that you intend to study. We have five faculties; Management, Information Technology, Education, Science and International. We are affiliated to some world class educational establishments such as Arkansas State University (ASTATE) USA, University of London and and 11 other UK universities via NCUK, Nilai University from Malaysia. These affiliations are apart from our own UGC approved programmes such as BSc(Hons) Business management, BSC(Hons) Information Technology and Bachelors of Education (BEd).

As the CEO of HORIZON CAMPUS, I would like to take this opportunity to invite you/your son to join our esteemed establishment to fulfil your academic objectives and enjoy the campus life with lots of other activities such as sports, associations and student council to become a complete person in life and serve the future of our country!
